Battery Babel

Yesterday evening, we tried to get a talking alphabet game to work. It was old and the battery compartment showed signs of leakage and corrosion. As feared, even with new batteries, the game gave nothing more than an electronic whine.

Six-year-old T observed, "Dad, I think it doesn't work because we put Japanese batteries into the English game and they can't understand each other."
